Alfred Sisley. The Lesson.
The Lesson is unique in Sisley’s work – a close-up view of figures in an interior. Only three or four other interiors are known and a handful of still lifes in an output of just over 900 paintings, all landscapes. The artist’s two children Pierre (b.1867) and Jeanne (b.1869) are seen at their lessons in the family home in Voisins on the edge of Louveciennes. Jeanne, a painter, died in 1919 and Pierre, a decorator and draughtsman, died in considerable poverty in 1929
